Plone facilitates web development by providing a highly usable and customizable interface to a feature-rich content management system (CMS). Plone uses these ready-made tools to enable you to create, publish, and retrieve content within your website. You will find Plone-based websites behind corporate Intranets and educational departments, as well as high-traffic, high-profile Internet sites
Plone Content Management Essentials serves as an introductory guidebook for working with Plone 2.0, from installation to ongoing administration and customization. You will quickly learn the basics of how to use Plone through examples and practical applications
Geared towards readers with little or no knowledge of Plone, the Zope Application Server, or the Python scripting language, Plone Content Management Essentials explains how to work with the core feature set of Plone, as well as how to integrate numerous third-party add-ons, enhancing the users' browsing experience.
A very good introduction to both Plone and Content Management Systems (CMS). Unfortunately, it has some very subtle errors, that makes it less than perfect. Anyway, it is recommended reading for anyone wishing to know what CMS and Plone is about, as it manages to convey the meaning with a CMS without resorting to any low-level technical scripting (thanks to Plone and its foundation, Zope)
